Definitely not "minimum-length" which means "Try to make a spanner at
least this long." 

How about "collapse-length", which would be analogous to "collapse-height"?
This exists already and means "Minimum height of system start delimiter. 
If equal or smaller, the bracket/brace/line is removed."

"remove-threshold" is another possibility.
